Barbara  A. McGuire (DeWitt)
LINNEUS - Barbara A McGuire, 83, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on February 10, 2018. She was born March 18, 1934 in Blaine to Birdie (Sparrow) and David Dewitt.

She graduated from Hodgdon High School, Salutatorian of her class in 1953. During her high school years she was an avid basketball player and lifelong fan of sports. After graduation she worked at Houlton Pioneer Times as a secretary for several years. On April 20, 1956 she married Darrell McGuire. Together they raised five children and started their family business, Darrell C McGuire & Sons, where she managed the office for 30 years. Barbara’s biggest joy in life was her family. She would always be seen on the bleachers following her children and grandchildren as well as her nieces and nephews playing various sports. She regularly traveled to regional and national softball tournaments following her family’s teams. Barbara loved family gatherings, large Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners and was known for her many famous homemade treats, specifically her chocolate cake with fudge frosting and brown bread.

Barbara is survived by her daughters, Catherine & Terry Reeves of Houlton and Elizabeth McGuire of South Portland; sons Douglas and Sarah McGuire of Rustburg, VA, Brent & Shellby McGuire, Jonathan & Heather, all of Linneus; grandchildren, Brian & Cheryl Oliver, Jennifer & Shannon Hogan, Ashley & Ryan Hallett, Brad & Heather McGuire, Nicholas McGuire, Dillon McGuire, Bailey McGuire, Jordan McGuire, McKenzie & Christopher Lezotte, Jared McGuire, Ellen McGuire, Meg McGuire and fiance, Matt Furrow; 8 very special great grandchildren; her brother, Dewey Dewitt, brother-in-law, Carl and Lana McGuire; sister-in-laws, Shirley Thompson, Joanne Howe, Marlene Hogan, Viola Hersey and Charlotte Ash; her best friend of 70 years, Donalene Blackie as well as dear friends Aleta Shea, Vallie Stewart, Joyce White and Lucy Colbath. She also leaves behind many very special nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her beloved husband of 55 years Darrell; her daughter, Julie Rae and an infant son; her brothers, Bert Dewitt and Robert Ash; sister-in-laws, Lucy DeWitt and Natalie DeWitt.

A special thank you to her granddaughter, Jennifer Hogan who has been her caregiver, companion and guardian angel here on earth and to mom’s caregiver, Darlene McGary who has become family.

Friends may call 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, February 15th at the Houlton Wesleyan Church where funeral services will be held 12 noon on Friday with the Rev. Wayne Robertson officiating. A spring interment will be in the Linneus Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, those who wish may donate to the Ark Animal Sanctuary, 70 Main Street, Houlton ME 04730 or to the Houlton Humane Society, 263 Callaghan Road, Houlton ME 04730.
